2 Peter 1:21 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

Came (ἠνέχθη)

Lit., was borne or brought. See on 2 Peter 1:17, 2 Peter 1:18.

Holy men of God (ἅγιοι θεοῦ ἄνθρωποι)

The best texts omit holy, and read ἀπὸ θεοῦ, from God. Render, as Rev., men spake from God.

Moved (φερόμενοι)

The same verb as came. Lit., being borne along. It seems to be a favorite word with Peter, occurring six times in the two epistles.
